    Cells are self-replicating nano-factories, but are so complex we can barely understand how they work much less direct them efficiently to accomplish useful things. In this way nano-technology is analogous to early industrialization. Before we domesticated horses and carrier pigeons to carry loads and messages. Now we build cars and planes to move us around. Today we rely on biology to supply us with food, medicines, and many useful materials. Tomorrow we’ll make our own more efficiently and to greater benefit to ourselves.

    People were afraid that the nanomachines would run a muck? That wouldn’t be so bad. I mean, I’m more of mamorpuhger guy myself, but text-based online RPGs can be fun, too. Now, if they ran amok, that would be problematic.

  • Thanks GZ,
    I have to stop proofreading these at 1:30 in the morning.
    I just found out that “amuck” can be used instead of amok, so technically, I was off by just a space ;-) I did however change it to amok above if for no other reason than the Classic Trek episode.

    Today: printers that can make their own components.
    Tomorrow: Muscle-bound Austrian cyborgs with huge guns.
    Pursue this technology at your own peril.

    How surprising it is that one of Bob’s posts devolved into a discussion of nano[insert noun here]. Can’t wait to hear it again on the podcast… ;-)
